Ferdinand Flores (a.k.a. The Chubster) is one of 2 sons of Benito and Teofila Flores from Manila, Philippines. Born on June 23, 1968, he got interested into magic at the age of 7 years old upon watching episodes of "Wonderful World Of Magic", hosted by Bill Bixby. On his 9th birthday he got an S.S.
